Counterpart‘s doubly delicious spy games resume this Sunday at 9/8c, when Starz’s sci-fi tinged espionage drama opens Season 2.

During the series’ freshman run, Howard Silk (played by J.K. Simmons), a low-level wonk at the Office of Interchange in Berlin, was introduced to his “other” — the Howard Silk from a top-secret parallel world. A stone-cold, highly skilled spy, Howard “Prime” had covertly traveled to our side to track an assassin named Baldwin (Sara Serraiocco), then stuck around to complete his mission. The kindly, meek Howard in turn had to take his dickish doppelganger’s place over there, where he was able to “reunite” with Emily (Olivia Williams), the wife who on this side until recently had been in a coma after an attempt on her life.

Season - Close - Howard - Alpha - Peter

As Season 1 drew to a close, Howard Alpha’s superior, Peter Quayle (Harry Lloyd), came to realize that his wife Clare (Nazanin Boniadi) was actually from the other side, and was acting as a mole for those who wish our world harm. Things then reached a fever pitch when the death of an operative at the exact middle of the Crossing that connects the worlds led to a shutting down of the passage, trapping each Howard on the wrong side.

TVLine invited Counterpart creator Justin Marks and fellow executive producer Jordan Horowitz to preview their plan for a well-warranted encore.
